Making a List

I know it’s early, but since I do most of my shopping on line, I don’t like to leave anything to chance.

My adult children no longer want to exchange gifts at Christmas. For them, it is just more stuff they have to contend with. Fair enough. Doesn’t mean they are not going to get something though.

The grandchildren have long lists, basically anything mentioned in the catalogues that arrive this time of year. Our budget says otherwise.

Last year, for birthdays, I painted a watercolour for each of family members. Unique and personal goes over well. I liked to carry the theme on for Christmas.

As some of you may know, we created Print on Demand accounts with Society6, Redbubble, and Zazzle. These companies allow you to apply your artwork to quality products, creating one-of-a-kind gifts.

Over the next couple of weeks, I will be updating my SHOP page with gift-giving ideas taken from these pages.

First on the list is the Moon Goddess floor pillow featured. My stepdaughter has been mentioning this for some time now.

The White Elephant

The Haunted Wordsmith sent me a gift this morning (a virtual gift, of course) of words to keep my poetry going.  I love this gift.

I’ve decided to pass the favour on and gift three others.  If you are feeling particularly generous, you can keep it going.

To Lana Cole at Welcome to our Campfire, I would like to gift a year’s supply of fire starter, to keep her camp fires burning, so we readers can continue to enjoy her posts.

To Therapy Bits, I’m sending a bone for Nitro – a true and loyal companion.

To my friend Dorinda, at Night Owl Poetry, I’m sending a packet of fairy dust – she’ll know what to do with it.  

Have a giving and joyous day all!
